Barclays and the Donmar Warehouse have produced a film to celebrate our ten year partnership.  Presented by Jade Anouka, one of the stars of the Donmar’s all-female Shakespeare trilogy, the film highlights the successes of our decade-long partnership.

The Donmar Warehouse is a 250-seat theatre founded in 1992 by Sam Mendes, and now led by Josie Rourke and Kate Pakenham. Over the last 25 years the Donmar has become synonymous with artistic excellence and attracts the industry’s leading artists to its stage, including Eddie Redmayne (Red), Tom Hiddleston (Coriolanus), Dame Judi Dench (Madame de Sade, The Vote) and Ewan McGregor (Othello).

The Donmar is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading producing theatres, with over 100 awards to its name.

Barclays Investment Bank became Principal Sponsor of the Donmar in 2007 and over the last 10 years we have worked with Donmar’s leadership to grow the theatre’s core ambitions of excellence, access and innovation. Barclays Front Row was launched in 2012, making £10 best seats available to the public. The scheme revolutionised the way audiences’ access the work of the Donmar with over 32,000 tickets sold through the three-year initiative.

We have had ten fantastic years with the Donmar, not only entertaining thousands of clients to first-class theatre, but supporting the Donmar as it has become one of the pre-eminent theatres in London and the world.

In 2013 we proudly supported the Donmar’s need to grow their creative home with the development of Donmar Dryden Street, a warehouse space close to the theatre to house the theatre’s rehearsal space, education work and administration. 

Josie Rourke, Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse said: “The Donmar is the home for leading artists to make world-class theatre. It is our mission to share that work with as many people as possible. As Principal Sponsor for the last ten years, Barclays have enabled the Donmar to excel in this mission.”
